The article presents the characteristics of hemp concrete on the basis of a literature review and own experience with preliminary research. This material, as a composite, has not been thoroughly studied and its composition is standardised, despite the fact that it consists of well-known, used and widely described components. It is characterized by a low coefficient of heat penetration with high heat accumulation, which greatly improves the conditions of thermal comfort for users. The level of porosity of the composite also translates into acoustic insulation, which is becoming an increasingly important parameter for modern construction. Negative carbon foot print putsit on the pedestal among other ecological materials. Hemp concrete is vapour-permeable, so it regulates the relative humidity in rooms, so there is no concern about the development of microorganisms in the partition.
